    does a hand held blender get the lumps out the shakes?

    i usually use an elec blender but it was to big to take home with me lol..

    never used a hand held one before, would it get the lumps out? seen a few cheap ones :)

    thanks guys

    it takes longer and you have to do it a bit at a time but yes it can be done - it is better and quicker with electric though! I took a hand held on holiday

    I gave up trying to blend - now I just turn everything into either a mousse or a muffin. Yum (I think!!)

    Will just warn you about this - muffins get rid of some of the nutrients and limit the amount of MAM (or add some fibre 89!)

    That's the one I've got, it's from their value range and it's worked brilliantly for me so far!

    Stick blenders are so much easier to clean too and much less faffing about. I've got one with a turbo function, think it's 500 watts and it goes through ice too. used to use a smoothie maker, but it was so difficult to clean the nossle thing.

    How about hot drinks? I really struggle to get the lumps out of the soups and tonight i tried the choc shake as hot choc and taste was ok but soooo bloomin' lumpy i felt sick drinking it! I have a hand (stick) blender but worried about splashing the hot drink everywhere lol!
    Also my CDC really says NO to the muffins and crisps :( but i am looking forward to the weeks I can have mousse and the bars (I'm only on my first week)!

    I totally understand what you mean!...I tend to have a cranberry bar, a hot mint choc and a frozen choc tetra in a day...chocolate heaven, and doesn't feel like your'e on a diet, therefore making it all easier. It's good to feel naughty :D
